I have to side with this guy. Yes kipping is a lot faster and yes, it does work on more parts of your body but don't kid yourself, it is putting a LOT of stress on your shoulders. I have been doing a lot more dead hang chin ups and pull-ups and while I do still kip in wods, I am actually considering stopping that completely and converting everything to dead hangs.
